I booked this as a stopping place for the night as I knew it would be to late to be driving through to Soldotna and have always enjoyed Girdwood. It gets a three for a few reasons. I stayed in the Sky View room. It is extremely small. It’s very clean and is decorated nicely but there really isn’t much space to move around in. The outside window is also right at the car park. It’s one of those properties that has a sort of basement room and so your window is literally at tire level with the cars. Thankfully it seemed that there was only one other couple staying there and there wasn’t much traffic but I imagine that would be fairly annoying in peak months. It’s next to what I can only assume was the laundry room as well as I heard what sounded like a dryer going for a while. My biggest complaint is the shower. At first it looks like it is going to be glorious because it is one of those waterfall shower heads but you quickly realize that the space they’ve put around it is not adequate for the size of the shower head at all. You absolutely cannot get away from the water. And it’s not like it’s a small trickle, this is a full on deluge! Ladies, if you don’t want to get your hair wet, that is to bad because by the time you get done, the entire place is wet. I finally gave up and turned everything off. Not the relaxing end to a long day I was wanting! Also, they advertise a breakfast but I’m not sure how they would ever be able to think of doing that as the place is only staffed from 4-9 pm per the sign on the desk. This was one of the reasons I booked this place because I wanted to get an early start and not stop anywhere for a while. I realize that this could be because of covid but there was no warning before hand or discount for not getting a service that was advertised on their website. There was tea and coffee out but not lids for the to-go cups. In the end it was comfortable enough but way to overpriced for what you get.

I stayed here for one night and it was such a great place. Very clean and comfortable. My room had a bathroom down the hall but it was very clean. Included breakfast. Highly recommend this as an affordable option in Girdwood.

Stayed one night, while getting my son organized to leave Alaska. No prior reservation, but lucked into single room. Staff was very responsive, good quick breakfast food. I didn’t like credit card surcharge (come with cash!? - no Banks within 30+miles - off brand ATMs). Really is nicest place in town outside overstuffed Alyeska “Resort”.

Stayed for one night and absolutely loved it. The reviews were spot on! It was super clean and very comfortable. We loved the breakfast in the morning and the woman that checked us in was very friendly. It was only her first or second night on her own, but she made certain to cover all the required information with us. We would definitely stay again.

The front desk let me check in a half hour early to make it to a meeting. The two queen beds and a full bath was great for a family weekend. The locally roasted and freshly ground coffee is a must to enjoy. I enjoyed banana muffins with fresh fruit for breakfast. If you want a huge breakfast walk across the street for waffles or sleep in and go right for wonderful hamburger. Drinks and pizza go across park. May want to bring ear plugs because sometimes has live music. The tv has Roku & Netflix. I chose the full bath and is had fresh & fluffy white towels. The room & bath room was clean. There is an electronic key pad if you come in later in the evening. The parking lot is out front. The lobby was always clean and had fresh ground coffee. Girdwood is a quaint little mountain village. I stayed downtown to be part of the village. Please drive slowly and yield to bike, walker most have dogs. Great hiking trails and winter skiing.
